Tbe Intimitis t'nunl. 

London, Fob. 24. — The passage of tho 
Nicaragua Canal Bill by tho United Status 
Congress has led to considerable discus- 
sion horo over tho ell'cct of the canal upon 
British interests, The controversy 
which occurred aovoral years ago aa to 
thu proper interpretation of tho Olayton- 
Bulwer treaty is likely to be renewed; 
Blaine was at that time Secretary of 
State, and it is considered probable on 
resuming that office ho will take occasion 
to reiterate his views as to the application 
of tho Monroe doctrine to tho subject of 
Isthmiean canal control. England never 
fully assented to tho doctrine laid down 
by America's premier at that time, but 
tho brevity of the Garfield administration 
and tho turn which events subsequently 
took in connection with the DeLeaseps 
nterprise, made unnecessary any further 
insistence upon tho different construction 
of the treaty, [f Blaine now renews his 
efforts to have the t reaty abrogated as in- 
consistent with thu longestablished claims 
of the United States to priority of inter- 
est in tho Central American States,, thero 
is likely to ho somo very interesting dip- 
lomatic fencing on botlt sides. English 
business interests view with somo uneasi- 
ness tho prospect of an American mon- 
opoly of trans-Isthmian communication, 
and will insist as far as possible on a sole 
international guarantee of neutrality. 
There seems to bo an impression here 
that the Panama Canal is also likely to 
finally drift into the hands of American 
capitalists, to be finished by them. Large 
American interest in tho Panama railroad 
is considered aB favorable to such a 
scheme. By tho wiping out of old obliga- 
tions a reorganized company could got the 
property as it stands cheaply enough to 
warrant its completion on a profitable 
basis. The cleverness of Americans in 
such peculiar financial transactions is re- 
garded here as enviable. 

The Aylsbury Divorce. 

London, Fob. 24. — Gossips give a queer 
version of the true inwardness of tho re- 
conciliation of tho Marquis of Aylesbury 
and his wife. The story goes that tho 
Marchioness persuaded Lord Abingdon, 
one of the co-respondents, who is enor- 
mously wealthy, to give her his cheque 
for 8500,000 in lieu of a life settlement of 
810,000 a year from the estate, and that 
sho then returned to Lord Aylesbury, 
who is poor except in entailed estates, 
and he agreed to shnro the money with 
her and withdraw the suit for divorce.

London, Fob. 24. — Doth tory and lib-

parliamentary seat for which Gont-Davis

ta ; n business irregularities. It is proba- 
ble that a now election w ill bo ordered. 



Socialistic GnlberlMgB. 

Paki.s, Feb. 24.— The Socialists at- 
tempted to hold a meeting in tho Hotel 
Deville to-day, but were prevented by 
tho police. Several small groups assem- 
bled, but as fast as they gathered they 
were dispersed by tho police. A fow of 
tho crowd resisted tho police and were 
arrested, but no one was seriously in- 
jured. Meetings of Socialists woro also 
held in Bordeaux, Lynns, Probaix and 
Marseilles. The gatherings wore entirely 
orderly. An enthusiastic meeting was 
hold at Nantez, at which political agitat- 
ors shouted from the platform, "Vivo la 
revolution sociale. " The police charged 
upon the crowd, which had fcikon up the 
cry, and forced them to disperse. Sev- 
eral of the mob were arrested. 

A Priest Arrested. 

Dublin, Feb. 24.— Father Stephens, 
aftor celebrating mass at Falcarragh this 
morning, entered a cart and was driven 
toward Gweedore, whore ho was to per- 
form a similar service. He wns followed 
by the police and arrested before lie had 
arrived at his destination. The charge 
against him was basod upon a sermon ho 
delivered at Falcarragh, in which he ad- 
vised his hearers to adhere to the plan of 
campaign. The arrest of Father Ste- 
phens created great excitement, and the 
military were compelled to assist the pol- 
ice to preserva order. Father Stephens 
was recently imprisoned for a similar of- 
fence against tho crimes act. 

What Boulnnaer Bays. 

Paris, Feb. 25.— In the chamber of 
deputies to-night a member read a state- 
ment attributed to Gen. Boulanger that 
he would give President Oarnot six 
months' leaseof office. Also, that in case 
of hostilities with Germany, sho should bo 
marched on via Stuttgart. Gen. Boulan- 
ger said lie had been correctly interpret- 
ed.

siastic over Morloy's speech. 

The Ciarewltch'i Kngacement. 

Dublin, Feb. 26.— The Krem Zeitimg

liupninl Pal I Inn t . 

"London,' Feb. 25. —In tho Commons to- 
day Thos. Sexton gave notice that ho 
would introduce a bill to amend the laws 
relating to contempt of court. This an- 
nouncement was received with cheers by 
the Opposition. John Morley moved an 
amendment to the reply to tho Queen's 
address, of which he gavo notice on 
Thursday, Tho amendment condemns 



the administration of law in Ireland as 
unjust and oppressive, and asks that 
measures bo adopted to content tho Irish 
and re-establish a real union of Groat 
Britain and Ireland. In support of his 
amendment Morley made a speech. He 
asked why, if, as the Government claimed, 
tho condition of affairs in Ireland was 
hotter, proceedings against Irish members 
of Parliament were now more frequent. 

The Vermaii Squadron. 

BERLIN. Feb. 25. — Thu "Storch," 
"Moltko," ''Charlotte" and "Olga" com- 
prise the Gorman aquadron ordered to 
Port Said. Owing to their small coaling 
capacity it would tako these vessels three 
months to reach Samoa. 

Kiuphiillciilly Beulcd. 

Pauls, Fob. 25. — General Boulanger, 
in an interview to-day, denied emphati- 
cally that he entertained any hostility 
toward England. His reference was to a 
dispatch from Brussels, printed in the 
London Times, stating that Lord Lytton, 
British ambassador at Paris, had in- 
formed his government that his (Boulau- 
gor's) hostility was not directed toward 
Germany, but England. The General de- 
clared that ho did not believe Lord Lyt- 
ton had sent any such information. 

I'rlure Alexander's itiiile. 

VIENNA, Feb. 25. — The marriage of 
Princo Alexander to Mllo. Loisingor is 
tho solo topic of gossip hero. The lady 
is described as tall and slender, with 
blue eyes and auburn hair, decidedly 
beautiful and of striking presence. Al- 
though equal in manner and appearance 
to thu titled ladies whom rumor had 
assigned to tho Prince as U probable con- 
sort, she is of very humble origin. Her 
mother was a peasant woman of tho 
Tyrol. Through the daughter's exertions 
tho old lady was established as lceepor of 
a pension at Presburg. In effect, the 
Princo scorns to have made a very sensi- 
ble choice and to have married into a 
very respectable family. The news of 
tho marriage caused a groat sensation in 
Darmstadt. Thu Prince's mother is 
frantic with grief over tho mesalliance.

The Addition to the Union, 

London, Fob. 25. — Tho Times, com- 
menting upon the addition of four new 
states to tho Union, says the Union has 
passed tho ordeal too many times for tho 
latest increase to cause top-hoaviness. 
But it iB an impossibility for a country 
like America not to bo transformed by 
the plunging into it of realm after realm. 
The Americans thumsulvos imperfectly 
comprehend tho actual amount of the 
metamorphosis; still less can they predict 
the eventual modification to which it 
points. But neither they nor for- 
eigners can help seeing that 
the centre of national gravity must be 
substantially altered by accessions such 
as these.

print subsequent explanations or to make 
an apology. He requests thu Times now, 
as an act of doceny and justice, to print 
explanations from tho Liverpool Post 
which he says will occupy loss space thun 
the original article. Mr. Gladstone con- 
tinues: "Your wanton intrusion on a 
private domain so alien to thu honorable 
traditions of tiie English press, has com- 
pellud me to bu thus guilty of seeming 
hnpertinance in troubling the public with 
my private affairs." In conclusion ho

ceedings. 

The Pnrnell-Tlnics Developments. 
London, Feb. 25. — With reference to 
the developments before the Parnoll com- 
mission, the 7'i/i/i/ News says it is hard to 



of which 



everybody is thinking and speaking. Re- 
ferring to Gladstone's remark that a vast 
fabrication of iniquity was about to be 
oxploded, tho News says: ''Profound 
respect for tho judges prevents our dot- 
ting Mr. Glaudstone'a 'IV and crossing 
his 'T's.' " Regarding Mr. Parnoll, tho 
News says if ha clears his character 
Englishmen will remember the patient 
dignity and gontlu forbearance and un- 
flinching courage with which the greatest 
living Irishman has borne himself under 
a storm of calumny which would have 
broken many a brave spirit. Hu will for- 
ever rank among tho most devoted, saga- 
cious, loyul and unselfish statesman that 
steered a country through storm and peril 
to honor and safety. Nor will tho names 
of Archbishop Walsh and Egan go with- 
out their due share of praise. 

Morley < rltlrl/es the Government. 

London, Fob. 25. — Mr. Morley sev- 
erely condemned tho conduct exhibited 
by thu administration in Ireland during 
tho last few months. Hu specially re- 
ferred to tho uncalled for arrest of the 
Irish members. "The time is fast com- 
ing," said he, "when an irresistible appeal 
will ascend from tho nation, asking Her 
Majesty the Queen to recur to tho senso 
of tho people, so that thoy may decide 
upon the great issues which are now di- 
viding thu government." 

Balfour replied to Morley. As he rose 
cries of "Pigott" greeted him, and tho 
Speaker was obliged to insist upon ordor 
being maintained. The secretary's speech 
was a strong defence for the government's 
course and a denial of inhuman treat- 
ment of prisoners in Ireland. Hu de- 
clared that thu prisoners under thu co- 
ercion laws ought to be treated as ordin- 
ary criminals till the charges against them 
wore proved unfounded. 

Balfour declared that wherever tho 
plan of campaign had operated, the con- 
dition of Ireland under thu Government 
measures to maintain order, had greatly 
improved. At every reference to tho con- 
spiracy. Balfour was interrupted with 
renewod criesof "Pigott." 

During the debate, Mr. Sexton saw 
Huston, tho witness against I'arnull, 
within the precincts of tho house, and ho 
indignantly protested against his presonce. 
Tho Speaker upheld Mr. Sexton, and 
later it was announced that Houston's 
niiiiio had boon removed from tho list of 
persons privileged to tho lobby. 

■Cull IteTused tit Father Stephen. 

Duiilin, Fob. 25.— Father Stephens, 
who was arrested yesterday, was ar- 
raigned in court to-day, charged with ad- 
vising his people to maintain tho plan 
of campaign. Ho was romandud for 
trial and bail was rofused. 

The Newfoundland FlihlnK llnnks. 

Paris, Feb. 25.— At a meeting hold 
yesierday at Granville, a resolution was 
pasted asking for an international con- 
vention to forbid tho passage ovur the 
Newfoundland batiks of steamships dur- 
ing the fishing lesson.

I From Our Own (Jorreiipondent.! 

Ottawa, Feb. 25.— In the Somite, Sen- 
ator Gowan advocated the abolition of tho 
grand jury system. Senator Abbott said 
tho countiy was not prepared for such a 
radical proposition, although ho thought 
the system had outlived its usefulness. 

.Mr. Mara saw tho Minister of Publip 
Works to-day and urged a grant for tho 
improvement of thu navigation of the 
Columbia river between Revelstoko and 
thu boundary. 

Tho Government have been urged to 
create a now postal division in the terri- 
tories on the ground that one is not suffi- 
cient. 

Tlio Government received a reply to its 
invitation forwarded last November to 
tho Australasian colonics asking them to 
send delegatus to Ottawa to tako part in an 
intercolonial conforencefor thu purpose of 
discussing improvod trade relations bo- 
twuun Canada and Australasia and joint 
action in regard to tlio proposed Pacilic

friendly and fraternal character, 
thoroughly appruciatory of tho good will 
involved in thu invitation. Tlio anti-

as thuy consist of seven governments to

ient to thorn if tho Dominion would send 
her representatives to Australia to tako 
part in a conference such as proposed, 
and mentioning Sydney or Melbourne as 
a likely place for holding tho gathering. 
In tho event of Canada accepting this 
proposal her delegates, aro promised a 
loyal greeting, and the colonics express 
themselves as willing to discuss all ques- 
tions likely to affect their own or the 
Dominion's welfare. The Government 
will not, however, consider this proposal 
until after tho session.

MR. 13. C. BAKER, M. P., 

States His Reasons for Leaving Ottawa-Will 
Visit the Sandwich islands -Politi- 
cal Matters. 

Mr. E. C. Baker, senior member for 
Victoria in the Dominion Parliament, 
was yesterday called upon by a represen- 
tative of The Colonist, who had a chat 
with him on various matters connected 
with his representation of the district. 
Mr. Baker stated that his return to Vic- 
toria was rendered imperative for several 
reasons. Tho oxplosiun in his vault had 
burned somo and disarranged many of tho 
important documents stored therein; his 
bookkeeper, who had charge of tho 
business, was ill in bed; urgent business 
had to bu transacted, and hu had arranged 
to accompany his Bohoonor Triumph on n 
trip to Honolulu. This latter, however, 
had been delayed through tho non-arrival 
of tho cable which the schooner was to 
carry to Honolulu. This had been caused 
by the burning of the factory whore it 
was being manufactured. 

Mr. Baker had hoped to tako the trip, 
which he so much needed on account of 
poor health, and return to Ottawa in 
timo for thu real work of tho 
session. Owing to thu early meeting of 
parliament, tho non-arrival of the cable 
and the fact that it was believod parlia- 
ment would prorogue by April 10th, ho 
was afraid ho would not now complete his 
voyage in time to bo of much service at 
Ottawa. The session might bo consider- 
ably prolonged, perhaps by a discussion 
on tho Franchise Bill, or thu Jesuit in- 
cident, for thu latter was causing a great 
dual of angry fueling. Col. Prior, how- 
ever, was now thoroughly initiated into 
thu work, and was looking aftor tho dis- 
trict's interests with praiseworthy 
zeal, and Victoria would not bo neg- 
lected. 

So far as tho calling of tho China stoani- 
ships was couoerned, both Col. Prior and 
himself had urged tho govornmont to in- 
sist upon their calling at Victoria, 
jut Postmaster-General Haggart had 
replied that it rested altogether 
with the Imperial authorities. Tho 
B. C. members contended, however, 
that the Dominion would have some- 
thing to say if thoy granted aid, and in 
doing so it should ho stipulated that 
Victoria bo mado a port of call, outward 
nud inward. The Island members placed 
tho matter strongly, but they received 
but a half-hearted support from the 
Mainland members. 

With regard to " C " Battery, it was 
not known whether it would be provided 
for in the supplementary estimates. The 
troublo in socuring tho completion of thu 
barracks arose from tho fact that out of 
tbe sum sot apart for tbe Minister of 
Militia, tho greater portion was devoted 
to Quebec battery, tho citadel, etc., and 
very little was loft for British Col- 
umbia. Tho hitter's representative! had 
boon such faithful supporters of 
tho Conservative party that they 
wore now looked upon as "solid," and 
could be denied where it would be necos- 
sary to accede to another member's de- 
mand, especially if tho lat.Lnr wns from 
Queboo. It was bis (Mr. Baker's) belief 
that British Columbia members should bo 
sent to Ottawa with some degruo of inde- 
pendence attached to thorn. He was Con- 
servative to the backbone, and under no 
circumstances would ho sit on the oppo- 
site sido, but for all that, it would 
strengthen the member's position if it was 
understood that ho was not a hide-bound 
party man, but ono who might where his 
constituents' interests wero at Btake, uso 
his discretion in assenting or dissenting 
to any measure. 

The return of Mr. Baker to Ottawa will 
depend upon the length of the session. If 
jt is itill under full swing when he arrives 



back from Honolulu, ho will start im- 
mediately for Ottawa. If but a few days 
intervouo between prorogation, he will 
not go cast. It hud beon his intention to 
go east with Mrs. Baker, and over to 
England to pay a visit to his father, but 
ho feared, owing to tho turn business 
affairs had taken, this anticipated plonsuro 
would have to bu postponed. Mrs. 
Bakor would, however, shortly leavo for 
tho oast, accompanied by Miss Johnson.

A Triumphant Procession— The President- 
Elect Enthusiastically Received by 
Crowils All Along the Line. 



Columbus, O., Fob. 25.— Tho train 
bearing President-elect Harrison and his 
family, loft Indianapolis at 3:18 p. m. 
Thousands of people crowded about the 
Union dopot.which Gun. Ilarriiou reached 
aftor having been driven through the prin- 
cipal stroets of tho city. At the depot ho 
made a short address from th* roar of tho 
car, thanking his old friends and neigh- 
bors for their kind demonstration and 
well wishes. At tho conclusion of his 
speech, the crowd gavo three chuurs for 
thu General and heartily applauded Pri- 
vate Secretary Halford, who made 
his appearance about this time. While 
the crowd woro still cheering the train 
slowly pulled out of the depot. At 
nearly all tho stations the crowds had as- 
sembled to suo the tram go by, and greet- 
ed its passage by waving and cheering. 
The first stop made was at Knightston, 
where tho President-elect appeared on 
thu platform and brielly addressed the 
crowd. At Cambridge City, Richmond, 
Piqua, Ohio, and Urbana, 0., large 
crowds were collected, but no speech- 
making was indulged in. At Piqua Gov- 
ernor Foraker and wife boarded the train 
and accompanied the party to the Penn- 
sylvania State lino. At Columbus a crowd 
of probably twenty thousand, accompan- 
ied by bands of music, etc., assembled at, 
tho depot. A stop off of ten minutes was 
made, during which the greatest enthusi- 
asm prevailed. Gov. Foraker introduced 
Gen. Harrison to tho people and a short 
address was made. The train left for thu 
east at 8.25 p.m. 

When tho special train reached Newark, 
there was a large crowd at the station, 
present to give tho President-elect a 
rousing reception. About fifteen loco- 
motivos in tho yards of tho railways 
contering hero began a series of shrill 
whistling, which made life hideous for a 
moment. Tho train passed by tho depot 
without stopping much to the disappoint- 
ment of the assembled multitude. The 
run from Nuwark to Dennison was 
without incident, except now and 
thun tho report of a gun or pistol. 
Tho Atlantic express, which is the 
pilot for tho President's special, was de- 
layed in leaving Columbus, consequently 
the special is about. 30 minutes behind 
time, It will hardly bu possible to mako 
up the timo before reaching Pittsburg. It. 
is not probablo that Gen. Harrison will 
do any further speaking until Har- 
risburg is reached, about 10 o'clock to- 
morrow morning. At this point it is ox- 
pectod tho governor and members of the 
legislature will meet the train and wel- 
come tho president-elect to thu Pennsyl- 
vania Capitol. The General is expected 
to speak when he reaches Harrisburg.

IGXOHA NT Oil UNSCRUPULOUS! 

Tho Leader of tin; Opposition should 
take his orjjan in hand ami give it a few 
lessons mi tin- [unctions of Lieutenant 
Governors under responsible government. 
The ignorance it displays on the subject 
is really phenomenal. I'hore is not. we 
feul quite confident, another newspaper 
in CimiuH, Conservative or Liberal, Grit 
or Tory, that has so little respect for con 
Btitutional irovommotit and the rights of 
the people as io invite the interference of 
the Governor in a trivial dispute between 
settlers respecting right, of way. In fnc 
the organ of the Opposition in this mat 
tor of the Saamrh laud dispute is so utter- 
ly absurd ami so opposed to the element- 
ary principles of responsible government 
as to be a reproach ma only to the party 
whose views and policy it is supposed to 
express, out to the Intelligence of the 
press of the province. When it is known 
in the other provinces of tin; Dominion 
that there is a newspaper in British Col- 
umbia ho densely ignorant or so unscru- 
pulously factious as to invoice the author- 
ity of the Lieut. -Governor to settle a 
io d dispute between three or hair set 
tiers, tlioy wiil naturally conclude that 
the newspaper men of the province must 
be sadly in need of some one to instruct 
them in the first principles of constitu- 
tional government. Intelligent men will 
also conclude thai the Opposition must 
be greatly wanting in either knowledge 
or self-respect when it does not restrain 
its organ from representing its members 
as desirous of depriving representative 
government of its powers and privileges. 
They can see. if the Timet cannot, 
that if the Govornor woro to 
arrogate to himself the powers which 
the organ of the Opposition in thin pro- 
vince claims for him the representatives 
of the people and those with whom they 
entrust, the executive power would be- 
come mere ciphci s. 

If this Saanich matter is of such very 
great importance, why docs not the Load- 
er of the Opposition bring it up in the 
Legislative Assembly and make the Gov- 
ernment's action upoil il the ground of a 
resolution expressing want of confidence 
in the Administration I He does not do 
this because he very well knows that by 
doing hi > he would make a laughing-stock 
of himself. Yet this woold.be the con- 
stitutional course to pursue, lie would 
thus get the opinion of the representa- 
tives of the people nf the whole province 
on the subject, Bui the Liberal organ ig 
nores the representatives of the people, or 
rather treats them with contempt, and 
wants the Lieut.-Governor to take action 
in the matter without giving the Legisla- 
tive Assembly an opportunity to uxpruss 
an opinion upon it. We feel humiliated 
in having to treat this matter seriously. 

hich the Times has taken is 
is, inl, so completely opposed 



oponod. The reason is givon by Mr. John 
in his letter that appeared in Sunday's 
issue. When explanations were mado it 
was found that the road which Mr. Mc- 
llugh wanted to open was not the old 
Saauioh road but a road through Mi" 
Reay's property which bad novor been a 
public road at all, and this is tho road 
about which the present agitation is being 
made. So we woro strictly accurate in 
what wo said, and Mr. Gore's represen- 
tations were proved by Mr. John to be 
corroct. Mr. Heay's property is, it ap- 
pears, badly cut up by roads, and tho 
Chief Commissioners did not see that they 
wore justified in cutting it up still further 
to pleaso Mr. Met! ugh. But our readers 
must see that the dispute is not one that 
tho Lieutenant-Governor has anything to 
do with. If this precedent were allowed 
t he responsible head of tho Lands and 
Works Department would he stripped of 
all authority and the Governor would 
be at the mercy of every litigious land 
owner and ovory irrepressible malignant 
crank in the country who happened to 
think that /lis claims are of paramount 
importance and should be allowed no 
matter at what loss to others.

We have said very little about the 
merits of this dispute, because they are of 
small importance compared with tho 
principle of appeal to tho Lieut-Gover- 
nor, dragged into il by some of the dis- 
putants and encouraged fur factious pur- 
poses by the organ of the I ^position, and 
it is fair to presume, by the members of 
the Opposition themselves. But it is 
really a ease i if tho very weakest kind. 
A Saanich settler or two waul more road 
accommodation than (hey en joy, and they 
want it at I he expenso of their immediate 
neighbors. The Government has not 
seen lit to grant these requests because 
by so doing it would do an injustice to 
others who have a right Id be considered. 
This is the whole case in two BOlltonces. 
We said that successive Chief Commis- 
sioners had refused to give Mr. McHugb 
what he asked for so persistently, The 
Timet affirmed that wo were wrong' 
for Mr. Smithe had promised to gram 
tho late Mr. MoHugh's recpiost. In 
proof of this it, reproduces a letter from 
Mr. John, in which thai gentleman 
informed Mr. Moll ugh that Mr, Smithe 
had promised to re-open tho part of 
the old Saanich road which Com- 
missioner Walkem had closed. Bui 
»t will bo observed that it was not re- 



AN OPEN CONFESSION. 

It is said that an " open confession is 
good for the soul." This may bo, but tho 
organ of the Opposition made a confes- 
sion a day or two ago which cannot bo 
good for its soul, for, as everyone knows, 
it has no soul, but which could not have 
been good for its reputation or for that of 
tho Opposition, whose exponent it is. 
Referring to the debate on well-boring it 
made the following very singular admis- 
sions: "Mr. Dunsniuir supplied tho Op- 
position with just what it wanted — am- 
munition. Until Mr. Dunsmuir spoke 
the Opposition had practically no data 
to work on." Vet the Opposition with- 
out "ammunition," without "data" to 
work upon, took upon itself to find fault 
with thu Government's well-boring opera- 
tions, That is, it opposed when it con- 
fessedly had no grounds for opposing. 
This is a most humiliating confession to 
make, but we have no doubt that tho 
Times blurted out the truth for once. It 
told the country that the Opposition is 
bound to oppose whether it has cause for 
opposition or not, whether its members 
know what they are talking about or 
whether they are, as they were in this bor- 
ing business, merely groping in the dark, 
trusting to chance or the candor of the 
Government and its supporters to get the 
information they need. The public after 
this will know how much respect is duo 
the strong assertions and the fiery epi- 
thets of tho members of tho Opposition. 
They most probably in live cases out of 
six, are based on nothing more substan- 
tial than their own imaginations — mere 
"sound and fury signifyingiiothing. " We 
see now that the Opposition go into action 
without " ammunition " and make state- 
ments without "data " to build them on. 
We trust that the next time any member 
of thu Opposition makes a howling speech 
on some fancied grievance ho will be 
asked for his "ammunition" and when he 
prefers a string of accusations against the 
Government an immediate demand will be 
made for^ho "data." It turns out now 
that Her Majesty's Opposition in tho 
Legislative Assembly of this province are 
like nothing so much as a regiment that 
go to battle with blank cartridges in their 
pouches. Wo are glad to see that the or- 
gan was candid for once. Mr. Dunsmuir 
is entitled to every credit for his frank 
and honest statement. The organ tries 
to make capital out of it but it will not 
succeed. The Government with the very 
best intentions undertook to sink an ar- 
tesian well. Thu business is one with 
which they are not well acquainted and 
they made a mistake on the side of econ- 
omy, They did not appropriate enough 
money for the work and it consequently 
was not a success. This Mr. Dunsmuir 
stated in the plainest manner. Mo did 
not try to find excuses for the failure but 
pointed out its cause to both Government 
and Opposition. Thu Opposition then be- 
gan to work on Mr. Dunsmuir's capital or, 
to change the tigure, to lire off the am- 
munition with which he had generously 
presented them. But the course which 
tho Government had pursued rendered it 
harmless. Thu only injury that has been 
done is to tlie Opposition itself. Its or- 
gan turned its artillery on its own ranks 
and its shots, as we have seen, have done 
much execution. 

MR BROWN'S PROTEGES. 

Mr. Adam Brown, M. P. of Hamilton, 
has taken the farmers of the Dominion 
innler his protection. Ho evidently re- 
gards thein as* a Biniple-mijided, unsus- 
picious set of men who are easily imposed 
upon by sharpers of one kind and another, 
and who requiro to be specially guarded 
by the law-makers of the Dominion. He 
has had a committee appointed whose 
members have had their nerves shaken 
and their sprits grieved by stories of 
frauds committed and attempted by agri- 
cultural machine agents, by seed and tree 
peddlers, by traveling pumpscllors and by 
a host of other designing wretches who 
are trying to make a dishonest dollar out 
of the simple-minded tillers of tho soil. 
Mr. Brown has no sympathy for tho mer- 
chant and city tradesman, who are looked 
upon as fair game by a whole regiment of 
cheats ami dead-beats. They, ho evident- 
ly believes, can look after themselves, and 
if any of thorn get bitten they are rightly 
served. The ordinary laws of the land 
are sufficient to right, any wrongs that 
may be inflicted on them. But it is very 
different with tho honest and confiding 
farmer who, liko thu bucolic Moses we 
read of, is ready to bo the dupe of any 
smooth-faced, glib-tongued villain whom 
he meets. The Canadian farmer, 
according to Mr. Brown, is oven more 
easily gulled than wan Goldsmith's Moses. 
He parts with his property for what is 
oven of less value than a bundle of green 
spectacles. He signs papers without 
dreaming of what are their contents and 
is amazed afterwards to find that be has 
given his promise to pay. Thero are peo- 
ple hero and thero who have bad dealings 
with Canadian fannora who do not find 
them at all simple. They are in fact, 
uncommonly shrewd and tho man who 



can get tho bettor of them in a bargain 
must have much inoro than ordinary cap- | 
acity us a dealer. As for be.ng unsuspi- I 
cious, they v/ould. laugh at the man who 
regarded them as too confiding. Not 
only do they oxamine closely every paper 
they sign to make auro that it is exactly 
what it purports to be, but ovury bank 
note they receive undergoes the most ri- 
gid inspection. They are not to bo caught 
napping. And we havo hoard stories of 
some of them trying in an innocent way 
to get tho upper hand of sharp city mer- 
chants, and succeeding, too. These stor- 
ies may bo tho most barefaced lies, but 
they arc hoard m every town and cross- 
roads' shop in tho Dominion. Wo havo a 
notion that Mr. Adam Brown's protege's 
are not so simple as they look, that thoy 
are quitu as well ablo to take care of 
themselves as are the men of any other 
class in tho country. We shrewdly sus- 
pect that if the great majority of these 
duals, in which alleged attempt? are 
made to impose on farmers woro closely 
looked into, thoy would bo found to be 
cases of diamond cut diamond. The far- 
mer, who is described as the victim, has 
most likely been simply disappointed in 
his attempt to get ten dollars' worth of 
goods for two. Properly looked at Mr. 
Brown's committee and Mr. Brownjp bill 
are insults to the intelligence and the busi- 
ness capacity of tho fanning community.

EDITORIAL COMMENT. 

On Thursday last the following para- 
graph appeared in our Bpocial telegram 
from Ottawa : 

Col. Prior was asked to day what truth 
there was in the report that ho would 
resign at tho end of the session, lie re- 
plied, "1 said [ would personally superin- 
tend tho readjustment of the constituen- 
cies after the decennial census of '91, and 
1 moan to keep my word." 

Every one who read this part of the 
telegram was completely perplexed. No 
one had heard that Col. Prior had the re- 
motest intention of resigning, and what 
ho had to do with the readjustment of the 
constituencies was a puzzle of the most 
bewildoring kind. But a few words from 
our Ottawa correspondent cleared up the 
mystery. In his telegram ho had written 
"Tho Premier" which on tho way was 
changed by the operator to "Col. Prior."

BRITISH COLUMBIA PENITENTIARY 

Roport oftlio Warden Tor the Your Ended DOth 
Juuf, 1888. 
British Comwbjca Pi;nitentiary,\ 
.3rd July, 1888. / 

Sir — I havo tlio honor to submit my 
annual report on Hie management of this 
penitentiary, with tlio returns for the 
psoal yeac.ended 30tl\ June, 1888. 

On the 30th Juno, 1887, there re- 
mained horo 89 convicts; received sinco, 
24; total, 113. Discharged during the 
year by expiration of bentonco, 30; by 
pardon, ti; by death, "6; insane convicts 
Bent to Kingston penitentiary, 4; on bail, 
1; sentence reduced, 1 — which left re- 
maining on 30tll June, 1888, b'8 convicts. 

With sincere regret 1 mention the 
death of C. N. Trew, M. D., surgeon of 
this penitentiary, which occurred on the 
28th of October last, after a lingering 
illness. I lu attended to his duties at the 

Jirison until ho could no longer leave his 
louse. He was connected with the in- 
stitution since it was Bret established, and 
is sorrowiully missed by the Officers and 
convicts, to whom he was always kind and 
attentive. 

The Canadian 1'aeilic Railway havo ob- 
tained possession of the whole water 
frontage of the penitentiary reserve, with 
the exception of the wharf where our 
coal, etc., is landed. 1 trust that you 
will recommend the Government to pur- 
chase the land to the north of the prison, 
known as Mr. Ooulthard's and Hon. P. 
O'Reilly's property. A portion of this 
ground, fully four acres, is covered with 
thick bush and heavy timber. This will 
be a source of danger to the penitentiary 
in offering a means of escape to the con- 
victs until it is cleared. 1 am glad to in- 
form you that the Public Works Depart- 
ment have commenced to build a house 
for the single guards. 1 hope they will 
soon follow with at least throe more cot- 
tages for the married guards. A house 
for the accountant should bo provided. 
At present he occupies one of the houses 
built for the married guards. Nothing 
has been done yet toward building a 
house for tlio Warden. 

Tlio stable, cow and cart-house, which 
is so very much needed, has not yet boon 
commenced. The workshops require 
general repairing, in order to make them 
habitable lor the convicts, who must 
work there during the winter months. 
The roof of the main building, which 1 
have so often complained about, has re- 
ceived no attention from the public works 
department. The basement floor is in a 
rotten state, and unwholesome enough to 
cause sickness. The flooring should be 
taken up and replaced by a concrete floor. 
The whole outside of the building requires 
pointing. The wharf is in a dilapidated 
condition. This should be attended to 
immediately. 

A more plontiful supply of water must 
bo brought to the guard's house, and 
proper water-closets built, with drain 
leading into the river. The dry-earth 
system in use there now is not suitable in 
this climate. Each of these several wants 
1 have repeatedly called attention to. 1 
assure you they are not trivial. 

A number of solitary cells should be 
constructed immediately. This can be 
done eaaily by altering some of the cells 
in the basement. . 

There is no hospital accommodation 
hero. This is, 1 believe, the only peni- 
tentiary in the Dominion withaut a place 
sot apart for the sick. No matter what 
pain or suffering a man is atllicted with, 
there is no place for him but the common 
cell. 

J bog to call your attention to the fact 
that a company is now formed here for 
the purpose of supplying New West- 
minster with water lioni the Coquitlam 
Lake. It will be necessary to lay the 
pipo for this through or very near the 
penitentiary reserve. When this is being 
done, I hope you will recommend that 
the penitentiary and the cottages be sup- 
plied. I am informed that the water can 
be forced over any of our build- 
ings. This is a nutter of much im- 
portance. The baker instructor is not yet 
appointed, although the bakery is long 
since completed. A carpenter trade in- 
structor should be put on the staff, and 
if appointed will bo u great saving to the 
Government. 

In the laundry lately completed 
a boiler, engine and mangle are 
provided. They are of no use 
in the laundry at present. The 
main building and workshops can be 
heated by steam; if another boiler is put 
in the laundry, then the services of an 
engineer will bo required. 1 hope to 
boo this done before long, as the stoves 
in use are not satisfactory; neither do I 
consider them safe. 

I am glad to report that the insano 
convicts were removed to Kingston. 
The conduct of the convicts in general 
lias been good. Of course, thoro are a 
few exceptions. The inspector's visit, I 
find, has proved of great benefit and en- 
couragement to all. 1 sincerely hopo the 
Government will no longer deprive this 
penitentiary from regular visits from him. 

As usual, I am able to report favorably 
of the officers. Every duty has been 
faithfully performed. The school lias 
been regularly and carefully attended to 
by Mr. Keary. Again I beg to remind 
you that, the duties performed by him as 
schoolmaster are deserving of more sub- 
stantial not ice 1 ban a few words ill the 
regular annual report. Indians and 
Chinamen, who are under his tuition, 
gain valuable knowledge during their 
confinement here. 

The deputy warden works as hard in 
the interests of the institution as though 
all his labor were given for his own per- 
sonal benefit ; every detail about the 
work, in general, comes under his care. 

A year or two since one keeper was 
appointed. This olticer performs the 
duties carefully and with great satisfac- 
tion. Still, he is only receiving the pay 
of a guard, though his duties aro far 
more responsible; therefore, I pray you 
will recommend an increase m his salary. 

Dr. DeWolf Smith, acting surgeon dur- 
ing the last nine months, has boon at- 
tentive to all duties eo uing under his 
care. 

The Chaplains have attended regu- 
larly. 

On the 19th August last wo had tl 
pleasure of a visil from the Hon. tl 
Minister of Justice. Ho went over the 
buildings and ground, and kindly inter 
viewed all tlio convicts who requested to 
Bee him. 

Before closing this report I wish to 
offer my (sincere thanks for the kind and 
valuable assistance received from you on 
many trying occasions throughout the last 
year. 1 have the honor to bo, sir, your 
most obedient, servant, 

Arthur II. McjBridk, 
J. G. MOYLAN, ESQ., Warden. 

Inspector of Penitentiaries, 



AN OSTKICH RACE. 

Huge Birds That Seem to Cover Fourteen 
Feet with Every Stride. 

A writer in the Providence Journal gives 
Rome interesting facts in regard to an os- 
Iriuti farm near Los Angeles, CaL, owned 
by Dr. J. C. Sketcliley. He has sixty acres 
dovoted to ostriches, having imported thirty 
pairs of theso birds directly from Africa, 
landing them at Galveston, Tex. Lie also 
brought with them four JIadrasese men 
and women; these people being thoroughly 
familiar with the habits of the ostrich. 
Their food is corn and alfalfa, the latter a 
kind of California grass, of which at least, 
half a dozen crops are frequently cut olT the 
same ground ill one season. Those ostrich- 
es weigh from 800 to -HKI pounds each. The 
male bird is black and the female gray, 
and they aro valuable chiefly for their feath- 
ers, the finest of winch soli for apiece, 
according to this account, while good, com- 
mon feathers bring i'JOO a pound. Tin- 
price of a full-grown pair of birds is from 
S7tK) to $800, and young birds, six months 
old, cost from 6160 to $200. They are a very 
long-lived creature, sometimes reaching 
the age of eighty years. The article closes 
with the following account of an ostrich 
race : 

At a command from the doctor one of the 
Madrasese keepers opened t he door of one of 
the pens, anil in response to the doctor's call 
two superb ostriches came running to him. 
After caressing the gentle creatures for 
a few moments, he showed them a handful 
of tigs, of which ihcy aro extremely fond. 
Two of his men then restrained the birds 
by placing nooses about their logs until he 
and myself had walked to the other end of 
the course. Then, at a signal from the doc- 
tor, the birds were released, and the race 
began. It seemed to me these birds cov- 
ered fourteen foet at every stride. Like 
the wind they came, their great necks 
stretched forward and upward to their ut- 
most length, their wings, like arms, work- 
ing with a motion similar to that made by 
their legs, and tilling the air with a mighty 
sound like the rushing of a whirlwind. 
Nearer and nearer they came, their speed 
increasing at every moment, till I was al- 
most terrified lest they should run us down, 
feeling certain that we could not withstand 
the shoclc. They kept well abreast I'm- near- 
ly half the distance, and then one began to 
forge ahead. He steadily increased Ilia lead 
till within a few feetof us. when he turned 
his head, and, seeing that his competitor 
was considerably in the rear, he .slackened 
his pace, and, jogging up to the doctor, re- 
ceived his reward in ligs and caresses. 



MISCELLANEOUS. 




lie Caught :> Htirglar. 

A good story is told by the Providence 
Journal of a well-known citizen of Provi- 
dence who, in view of recent burglaries 
in his neighborhood, concluded to remain 
over night at his city residence. During 
the evening he lay down upon a lounge 
meditating what he would do in cast; bis 
castle should be invaded by thieves that 
night. While thus meditating he foil 
asleep, and his slumbers wero so refresh- 
ing that nearly two hours passed bofore 
he awoke. Opening Ids eyes and ears he 
fancied he saw and heard some one in the 
house. Securing a position which enabled 
him to have.au unobstructed view, he saw a 
man in another room. He came upon lam 
unexpectedly and struck him a blow which 
nearly felled him to the floor. Judge of bis 
surprise when he discovered that the m an 
ho had so vigorously pounded wns a police- 
man who had received instructions to guard 
the house while the owner was aupnosed to 
bo outof the city with his family. The po- 
liceman told him in explanation of his pres- 
ence that he saw a light in the house, and 
finding the door unfastened, had walked in 
und boon all over the house in search of the 
supposed thief or thieves, and had just tele- 
phoned to the statio n fo r help to make tho 
capture. * ' '

Q. G. Gkeen, DearSir:— I am frequently 

troitbled with severe colds, and the only 
remedy that will relieve me of them is 
your i/oic/ice's German Hyrup. 1 have used 
it for more than twelve years. It is a 
constant household companion with me, 
Our merchant hen' procured il first n't my 
solicitation, and says hu has sold a great 
many buttles. It. is a vory popular remedy 
in this section. Every person who has 
used it speaks in the highest terms of its 
merits. I do liol know of a single case it 
has not. cured. 1 first used it in Vermont, 
where 1 lived before coming here. I 
advise everyone to use it, as it is certainly 
fcho bosk cough medioino I have over known, 
I have tried nearly all of them at dilloronl 
times. 

Yours respectfully, MOSES GRAY, 
Proprwtor Grist Mill. 



LOCAL AND PROVINCIAL. 

The Vanfleld Utatlroaa. 

Mr. Charles P. Kinf;, of tho Northern 
Pacific, hus boon appointed general man- 
ager of the Ciinlield railroad. He says it 
will bo completed from Whatcom to Now 
Westminster by September 1st. 

Ccdnr mil Entertainment. 

To-night a bus will start at 7. IS sharp 
from tho Clarence Hotel corner, round 
trip fare 25 cents. As already intimated, 
several well-known Victoria gentlemen 
have undertaken to asaiat in tho pro- 
gramme, which for variety and merit 
promises well. 

Tenders lorTelesraph lines. 

Tenders are invited by tho Dominion 
Government for the construction of about 
54 miles of telegraph lines along tho new 
witgon road between Nanaimo and De- 
parture Bay and Alberta settlement; also 
about Ii0 miles between Cape Beale Light- 
house through the foivHt to Carmenah 
Point, near Boililla Point, on the Island 
of Vancouver. 

The Northern Missions. 

The Gospel steamer Glad Tidings will 
sail from Vancouver on Wednesday for 
the Northern Missions, with Rev. Mr. 
Robson on board. .She will go as far as 
Port Simpson and the Nans. Mr. Rob- 
son will visit these, and instruct and talk 
to tho people. It is understood Rev. Mr. 
Crosby is mooting with great success in 
tho East. 

Silver Ledge Discovered. 

Tho Nanaimo Courier reports that a line 
silver ledge has been discovered on Les- 
ipteti Island. The ledge is said to bo dis- 
tinct, easily traceable and prospects excel- 
lently. Quartz has been known to exist 
on tho island, but it has never until lately 
commanded any attention. Thu recent 
discoveries on Texada, have stimulated 
prospectors to try elsewhere and the 
locating of the ledge on Lesquett is the 
result . 

Fuuerals. 

The mortal remains of the the late Mr. 
Frank Van Horst were consigned to their 
last resting place in Buss Bay cemetery 
on Sunday afternoon. Kt. Rev. Bishop 
Uridge officiated. The pall bearers were : 
S. E. King, C. Geissolman, P. Engleharst, 
Louis Hiifon, .lames Smith and ('. Nagle. 

Tho funeral of the late Mrs. Henry 
Budge took place yesterday afternoon 
from the family resilience, King's road. 
Rev. \Y. Pollard conducted the services 
both at the house and the grave.

Tin- Long Snider Ulfle. 

A private letter received last evening 
from Col. Prior states that he had suc- 
ceeded in having long Snider ritles issued 
to any member of the volunteer force or 
li. C. Ritle Association who may wish to 
obtain them. It is now in order for the 
association to secure a good range, in 
which event 1889 will undoubtedly prove 
a successful year to that worthy institu- 
tion. With long ritles for practice and a 
good range the Ottawa team will no doubt 
make n proper showing this year. 



l»orl Angeles Municipality. 

The town of Port Angeles, W. T., is 
having a lively contest over the matter of 
incorporation as a municipality. There 
are two factions, each wanting control, 
viz: The east-enders and the west-end- 
ers. The west end is the old Government 
town, founded in 1863, and a part of 
Smith's addition, and the east end is 
owned and inhabited by the Pugot Sound 
colony. A part of Smith's addition is 
also ill the east end. Practically the town 
is one, and the entire district is not too 
large for one city, even at the present 
early stage of development. 



Thr Fritter Blver Bridge. 

Some conception can be formed of the 
magnitude of the bridge destined to cross 
the Fraser river at Mission for the C.P.R. 
when it is stated that there will be over 
three million feet of lumber used in its 
construction. The estimated cost is in the 
neighborhood of fc'L'o.OOO. Four tenders 
have been deposited for this gigantic un- 
dertaking. These have been forwarded Lo 
Mr. Abbott at Victoria, w hose decision 
will lie given in a few days. It is stated 
that fully 100 bridge carpenters will be 
employed for three months on the work. 
The framing will be done in one of the 
yards •>( < j tt r lumber mills, and then taken 
up in a scow and put in position.- World. 



ItechlcNH Shooting. 

The pot-llUllters who were out at Foul 
Bay on Sunday last tiring in all directions, 
apparently regardless of consequences, 
furnished an excellent, reason why Mr. 
Tolmie's trespass bill should become law. 
Mr. Wm. McNeil, who resides in the 
neighborhood, was forced to seek cover 
from tho dangerous proximity of Hying 
bullets. Other farmers complain that 
amateur sportsmen are continually firing 
their guns in n reckless way. 

Mr. Henry King yesterday discovered a 
valuable bull lying dead with a bullet 
through a vital part. Whether its death 
was caused by a stray shot, from some 
hunter's rifle, or maliciously, is unknown. 
It, is hoped in either case that the offender 
will be brought to justice and severely 
punished. 

Porl Towusend Mitel Knllwny, 

The city council of Port Towusend has 
passed an amended ordinance relating to 
thu motor line, and the ordinance lias re- 
ceived tho approval of the mayor. A 
contract for 15,000 ties has been let to 
Wm. Payno, wit li the privilege of 10,000 
more. There have been ordered two 
motors and two passenger cars, of a ca- 
pacity of. forty persons each, of the latest 
and best pattern, freight cars and rails, 
all to bo shipped within thirty days. A 
sufficient force has been engaged for grad- 
ing. Under the franchise the company is 
limited to one block at a timu within the 
city limitn, heucu grading will not com- 
mence until the rails and motors are here. 
Then the road will be completed one 
block at a time. It will start at the 
Union wharf, and the engine will carry 
ties, stringers and rails to the front as the 
track progresses. The line will circum- 
scribe the city and he seven miles long.

More Brick Blocks, 

The row of unsightly old frame build- 
ings which have so long offended the eye 
of tho pedestrian as ho passes the north- 
west corner of Yates and Douglas streets, 
are to bo torn down at once, in order to 
make room for a handsome, throe-story 
brick block which M ossrs. Alison & 
Mason purpose erecting on tho sito. Mr. 
Parker, who occupies the corner number 
of this rickety row as a branch butcher 
shop, has already moved out, and in a few 
weeks, the collection of old shanties will 
have ceased to disgrace Iho street on 
which they now stand. The new block 
will contain three or four handsome and 
thoroughly modern stores, with offices, 
etc., up stairs. 

Tenders are also called for, for tho erec- 
tion at tho corner of Government and 
Humboldt streets (the sito of the old Aus- 
tralian Hotel,) of ii new brick block, three 



atories in height, which will bo usod as a 
first-class hotel on tho European plan. 
The work of construction, it is expected, 
will be commenced early in March. 

A Mongolian Km*. 

On Sunday evening, two Chinamen 
named Chow How and Young Hing quar- 
relled in a house on Fisgard street, and 
Hing finally stabbed How in tho side with 
a clasp knife. The wound, although not 
likely to prove fatal, is a very painful one. 
Hing was arrested last evening on a charge 
of felonious wounding. 



The Minstrel*. 

Richard and Pringlo's famous Georgia 
minstrels played to a full house in The 
Victoria last evening. Tho company num- 
bering sixteen genuine colored people, 
gave a thoroughly good performance, and 
succeeded in putting n touch of nature 
into their acting which is sadly missed 
from that of tho burnt cork artist. 



Letter Postage. 

The statement published in un evening 
paper of Saturday last, headed "Heavier 
Letters," is misleading, as tho increased 
weight of letters to one ounce for tlireo 
cents has not yet come into operation, 
although such a change is contemplated. 
Tho assertion in tho item that a prepaid 
letter wns sent to tho dead lotter office is 
also wrong. No stamped letter is over 
thus disposed of; but is always forwarded 
to its destination, and the deficient post- 
age, if any, collootod from tho person or 
firm to whom the letter is directed. 



SPOUTS AND PASTIMES. 

REGATTAS BY THE WHOLESALE, 

To the Editor, — A recent issue of a 
Tacoma paper contains the information 
that a regatta just such as the good peo- 
ple of Victoria have been looking forward 
to on tho 24th of May, is to bo hold in 
Tacoma: Hamm, (''Connor, Peterson, 
Loo and Hanlan to compete. It is also 
stated that these same professional oars- 
men are talking of still another regatta at 
Seattle. If their programme is to v isit, 
each city desiring them "scoop in" §1,000 
in cash, and go on to the next place; 
surely no real advantage is to bo gained 
by any one place honored by their presence. 
I should like to know if Victoria intends 
to contribute her 81000 towards a regatta 
if the oarsmen merely wish to make th 
Queon City one of the many places which 
it appears they intend to visit and hold 
regattas, at §1000 a piece I 1 am heartily 
in favor of paying liberally to have a first 
class regatta here that will bring tin 
strangers to our city, but if every placi 
on the Sound is to have a similar aojuatii 
exhibition, even $1000 seems to be to< 
large a bid for the travelling show.

A number <>f thorough sportsmen resi 
dent in this city are agitating for the 
amendment of existing game laws, to 
mako tho exposure for sale of venison 
under ono year old, an offence. The 
necessity of such an amendment bein 
made, the better to preserve the royal 
game of our province, is very apparent 
and it is to be hoped that something will 
be done by the members of the legislature 
in whoso hands the matter has been 
placed. 



ST. ANDREWS CHURCH. 

The Contract Awarded to Joshua Flollanil- 
work to Bf;;lii To-day. 

Tenders for tho erection of the new St 
Andrew's church, at the corner of Doug- 
las and Bruughton streets, were received 
and opened yesterday, and the contract 
awarded to Mr. Joshua Holland for about 
$41,000. The ground will be broken to-

THE LIMITS TO BE EXTENDED. 

The Hoard of aldermen Decide to Increase 
the City's lioumlarlen. 

A special meeting of tho City Council 
was held last evening in the Mayor's office 
for the purpose of again taking into con- 
sideration tho proposal to extond tho 
limits of tho city. There wore present, 
Mayor Grant, presiding, mid all tho mem- 
burs of tho Board. 

Tho Mayor reviewed briefly tho objects 
of the meeting and the advantages to be 
gained by moving at once in the 
matter of extending the city limits. 

Alderman Harrison oxplained that 
another vote would bo callod for. 
He asked tho membors of the board to 
throw away all personal foolings and to 
consider tho question of extending the city 
boundaries, upon its merits and in the in- 
terests of the city of Victoria, If action 
was delayed the probability was that other 
municipalities would grow up around Vic- 
toria, looking the city in and effectually 
preventing development and progress. 
At present even the city park, maintained 
and improved each year at a great expense 
to the city, was outside the city limits. 
If the city did not move at onco in tho 
matter undor consideration, it was a cer- 
tainty that other municipalities would soon 
rise just outside. Tho question was 
whether or not tho aldermen would allow 
the future development of tho city to bo 
blocked or not, by thu formation of these 
outside municipalities. 

Aid. Ooughlan did not think there was 
any probability of any outside munici- 
pality being formed. If there was he 
would be the first to vote for an extension 
of tho city limits. As Aid. Harrison said 
a movement was on foot to form municipali- 
ties in Victoria West and in Victoria East, 
but it was still an open question whether 
or not these movements would amount to 
anything. He did not think they would. 
The passage of tho resolution to extond 
the city limits was to increase thu 
area of the city by tli square 
miles without taking in Victoria 
West. This was a very largo area. Kor 
the improvement of tho outlaying por- 
tions of the city now, lie contended $20 
was spent for every in taxes returned 
to the city treasury. Ho would ask the 
Hoard if it was wisdom in the interests of 
the city to increase tho area of outlying 
land. Personally, lie would bo greatly 
benefitted by tho extension of the city 
limits; if not immediately, in a very few 
years. Ho thought very many living just 
outside tho city now wore very desirous 
of coining in. They wanted to cut their 
property up, and it would bo money in 
their pockets for thu city to open up roads 
and improve their property. Ho thought 
Aid. Harrison was wrong in saying that 
it was not necessary to open up roads and 
make public improvements as soon as the 
outlying districts were taken over. They 
would pay their taxes as soon as they be- 
came a part of tho city and could demand 
their new roads, as they doubtless would, 
lie did not consider the extension of the 
city limits was in the was in tho interests 
of this city: it would bo in the interest of 
the property owners outside. The city 
had all it could do now to keep up the 
necessary improvements. Tho wooden 
sidewalks all over wore tho most expen- 
sive that could be. It was time the city 
took into consideration some plan 
for supplying the city with substantial 
walks. The city had now 121) miles of 
streets. Compared with other cities Vic- 
toria had tho same length of streets as 
other cities of one-half or one-third more 
population and one-third more revenue. 

Aid. Vigilius was glad that Aid. Cough- 
Ian bad said it would benefit him if the 
city limits were extended. Many others 
would be benefitted in the same manner. 
All who opposed the extension of the city 
limits would eventually see that it was in 
their own interest. Mr. Finlayson, Mr. 
Pearae and Mr. Pomberton would all 
take this view of the mat- 
ter in time. He thought the 
streets and sidewalks in Victoria wore 
in as good condition as in any city of tho 
land. In thu last three or four years 
great improvements had been made. He 
called upon all the members of the Board 
to cast aside private considerations, and 
looking at the matter in the right light, 
act in tho best interests of Victoria. 

In order to discuss the matter more 
fully the Council went into committee of 
tho whole, with the Mayor in tho chair. 

Aid. Styles asked if it was tho inton- 
tioti to include Victoria West / 

The Mayor replied that ho so under- 
stood it. 

Aid. Harris enquired what benefit Vic- 
toria was to derive from the extension of 
the city limits i Would it bo by the in- 



■r taxation ! 
mayor replied 



that the extension 
of the city limits would prevent other 
municipalities growing up around Victoria 
to prevent, thu natural development of tho 
city. Other cities have very recently 
been obliged to take in municipalities that 
hud been formed outside their limits, as- 
suming their debts and respon- 
sibilities, which were more than 
double what they would have been 
had they taken in tho outlying 
districts before thoy organized their own 
municipalities. An example was to be 
found in the case of Montreal and Hoche- 
laga. It was an error, ho thought, to 
allow the formation of municipalities in 
tho neighborhood of n city that may 
reasonably be expected to expand. There 
was already a movement on foot to hedge 
Victoria in, all the way from Ross Bay 
to the sea on the west. It would be a 
great mistake for tho council to allow this. 
In regard to taxation, hu thought that if 
municipalities were formed on tho west 
and east, the residents of those sections 
would lind thu expense a great deal 
heavier if they wore hound to support 
their own Town Hall, which would bo a 
necessity; their own stall' of officials and 
their own public improvements, than if 
they were a part of Victoria city. 

Aid, Coughlan thought it was neither 
in the interest of tho city to allow tho for- 
mation of outside municipalities or 
to extend the city lines. If 
thesu two propositions wero the 
questions before tho Board and ho should 
vote for the latter. There was, however, 
no certainly that any outside municipal- 
ity would bo formed. If there was an 
application for one, there was a counter 
pplication against it. 
Aid. Styles remarked t hat tho residunta 
f Victoria West din not want, to organize 
a municipality. "They would prefer to 
come into tho city. Thoru were counter 
petitions out against the formation of a 
municipality. 

Aid. Wilson said if those counter peti- 
tions were not handed in, Victoria 
West would get a charter just the 
same. Ho was strongly in favor of tho 
extension of tho city limits. Ono gentle- 
man, whom he could name, was interest- 
ing himself very much in tho matter of 
forming an outside municipality, and if 
tho scheme before tho Council did not 
carry, ho was confident that tho gentlo- 
inan he had referred to, would succeed in 
getting a charter. 
Aid. Stylos — Who is tho gentleman? 
Aid. Harrison — Mr. Pomberton. 
Aid. Wilson, continuing, pointed out 
how many outside tho city wore now en- 
joying the city water privileges, to which 
thoy had no right, having con- 
tributed nothing towards tho construction 
of tho service. Ho was in favor of shut- 
ting oil' their water supply if thoy wero 
not made a part of the city. 
Aid. Stylos— What about tho light? 
Aid. Wilson—Well, 1 would do tho bost 
I could to prevent them onjoying tho city 
light. 

Aid. Styles— Got a dark slide for tho 
lamps. 



Aid. Coughlan— Build a fonco around 

it. 

Aid. Kelly— Put up an umbrella. 

Aid. McKillioan thought it would bo 
very foolish for the city to wait 
until tho outside municipalities had 
a chance to form. Now was tho time to 
act. Aid. Coughlan had said that thoro 
was no certainty thoy would bo formed. 
Thoro was no certainty they would not. 
Ho advised immediate action in tho inter- 
est of Victoria. Ho moved, seconded by 
Aid. Kelly, that tho resolution of the 
council last Wednesday night bo rescind- 
ed, and another resolution of similar im- 
port bo put to vote, it being understood 
that Victoria West was inoluded in tho 
district to be taken in. 

Tho resolution carried on tho following 
division : 

Yeas — Aid. Ooodacre, McKillican, 
Styles, Harrison, Vigolius, Kelly, and 
Wilson— 7. 

Nay— Aid. Ooughlan— *. 

Aid. Harris did not vote. 

On motion, tho committoe rose and re- 
ported their resolution to tho council. 

Moved by Aid. Vigolius, seconded by 
Aid. Kelly, that tho report of the com- 
mittoe bo confirmed and adopted. Car- 
ried. 

Thu board then adjourned. 

JUSTICE TO THE INDIANS. 

To the Editor: Thoro is a law off 
British Columbia preventing Indians pre- 
empting land. Thoro is no good reason 
nowadays why this should be so. Remov- 
ing tho obstruction, considerable discon- 
tent will bo removed also, for immigrants 
and the aborigines would then bo upon 
tho same footing as regards a land titlej. 
More they can scarcely ask. Tho sooner 
tho aborigines aro put undor tho same 
laws as ourselves, and for the most part 
thoy aro so, the better it will bo for all 
concerned, Of course their reserves 
must bo presorvod to them, but whilst 
thoy are not allowed to pre-empt land 
they aro obliged Lo congregate together, 
without any means of segregation. Means 
ought to bo given to tho more active 
am on? them to commence on their own 
account, for by so doing they would ad- 
vance and ho advanced, their tribal rela- 
tions at the same time falling into disuo- 
tude. I know tho objection urged by many 
that the land pre-empted or purchased 
by Indians, would soon become tho prop- 
erty of religious denominations, enriching 
and making them powerful, an ovil politi- 
cally vory undesirable, but this ob- 
jection has probably been made too much 
of, for Indians, like other people aro not 
as a rule willing to give away property 
which they possess, for nothing. Human 
nature is the same whether in tho abo- 
rigine or the emigrant. Tho truth seems 
to bo that the sooner all inhabitants of 
British Columbia, whether aborigines or 
immigrants, are put upon tho same footing 
tho bettor. Of course for the reserviaB 
and reserved there must necessarily be 
special regulations, for a time stall events, 
but outside these, the fewer tho better.
